Summary0001060: Can't eject USB stick after saving a module

Having saved a module file, Windows says that the USB stick is in use until you quit OpenMPT. This applies even if you've closed the module file.

Steps To Reproduce
  1. Start OpenMPT
  2. Insert a USB stick
  3. Save a module to a USB stick.
  4. Close the module file
  5. Try to safely eject the USB stick -> Windows says it's in use.
  6. Quit OpenMPT
  7. Try to safely eject the USB stick -> No problems
Additional Information

At a guess, OpenMPT is setting its current working directory when saving a module. If you look at the list of recent files (on step 5), the path to the module is not fully qualified (perhaps a smoking gun to the current working directory being the same as where the file was saved).

Just checked and a similar kind of problem applies having done an "Export as lossless". Would need to investigate further to see what else might cause similar issues.

TagsNo tags attached.
Has the bug occurred in previous versions?
Tested code revision (in case you know it)

Your conclusion is obvious, but OpenMPT itself does not actually change the working directory. However, opening a file dialog such as the "Save As" dialog seems to inevitably do exactly that. This can be verified by saving the file on a USB drive and then calling the save as dialog again and storing the file on another drive. I am not sure if we can work around this, because as said, OpenMPT does currently not change the working directory by itself and I think it should also not do that in the future.

Have a read of this post. You can apparently prevent the working directory being changed as a result of using a file dialogue.

Thanks for doing the required research. I think we should be able to set this flag.

Thanks indeed, that should fix the problem.
